The 2017-18 Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association (CIASA) season kicks off with the 33rd Annual Foster’s Food Fair IGA 800m Sea Swim on Saturday, 9 September.

It will be the first competitive race for many local swimmers after the summer break. The event will be followed by a 400m swim for those 12 years and under.

“Sea swims a great activity to participate with family and friends from all age groups and help you stay active and fit.  If you can swim, but haven’t entered a sea swim before, the Foster’s Sea Swim is an excellent event for first timers,” said a CIASA spokesperson.

The race begins at Governor’s Beach at 4:00 p.m. with registration taking place between 3:00 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. A loop course will be set up with the race also ending at Governor’s Beach.

If weather conditions threaten the safety of the swimmers or organisers, the race may be cancelled at the discretion of the Race Director.
